Hi all, I mostly post in the JK threads but my dad just picked up a very clean 79' CJ5. Rebuilt motor, new clutch, new tires, straight body and frame with hardly any rust. The thing runs like a top and seems to have been very well taken care of.

The only thing the guy we bought it from didn't address were the front wheel hubs. He said they need to be re-packed. Can anyone tell me how much of a process that is? Do we need to buy new bearings when we repack as well? Any tricks to the job or special tools needed? We have a fairly well stocked shop and both of us are pretty handy, but certainly not pro mechanics.

It doesn't make any noise or have movement in the hub, he just said he would do that before he drove it long distances on the highway. Thanks for the help.
